House. Circa 1500, extended C16/C17 and altered C19. Timber framed and part exposed

tiled roofs. Wealden hall house in origin. The hall house range to south, of 2
storeys on plinth with jetty to left and recessed hall bay to right, the eaves
carried on arched braces. The right end bay has been destroyed, a single post now

Three light and two 2 light wooden casements on first floor and canted bay, 5 light
mullioned and leaded window and glazed door on ground floor. The end left bay with
its jetty returned to left is a C19 extension. Right return with framing in
St.Andrews cross pattern. Wing added to rear C16/C17, of 2 storeys and garret with
half-hipped roof and stacks to right and to left, the latter with massive sandstone
base, offset and tumbled-in English bond brickwork and truncated flue. Glazing bar
sashes on each floor. Panelled door in lean to outshot to right of rear wing, and
single storey extension with stack to rear left. Interior: open truss roof, the
framing evidence suggests the lost east end of the Vealden was the service end;

surrounds and moulded main beams. See E.Mercer, English Vernacular Houses, p.175.
